We all need to support a young artist’s vision – especially when it does not align with our own. New ideas need wild fermentation. Artists need fortitude and constitution, but sometimes this needs to be nurtured. These young creators need our economic support. This is why I am backing a scholarship to this amazing programme at ACM.

ACM is extremely excited and honoured to have such an inspirational world leading producer offering this prestigious award. Sylvia has been a groundbreaking unique force in the music industry for many years, not only creating masterpieces, but also paving the way for female producers in this business, too.
